Would you like to prepare pasta with porcini in your Thermomix? A professional first dish made in a few simple steps.
Thanks to dried porcini mushrooms, you won't need to go looking for fresh porcini in a forest or specialised markets. You just have to soak them to find their unmistakable taste and flavour.
I've used this Samantha Desiderio's recipe to dress some homemade fettuccine I made myself (with Thermomix of course!) on Sunday. All the guests licked their chops! Even my daughters ate them because of my little trick (read about it in "My advice" section).
As only a few people know, Thermomix can also be used to cook spaghetti, such as in the Bacon and Peppers Pasta or in the Pasta with Asparagus.
Do you adore mushrooms in every single way? Then try the Champignon Mushrooms Pasta Sauce, the White Mushrooms Crepes and the Squids and Mushrooms Risotto.

Put this mixture aside.
Add garlic and chilli pepper. Chop. 5 Sec. Speed 8.

I always have a problem with small pieces of vegetables in the dish that not everyone likes. So I've mixed the sauce before dressing fettuccine. Even and especially my daughters said they were dainty!
